TOPIC 1:
Inspiration/Motivation Keynote: "The Ultimate Communicator: How to Say What You Mean and Get What You Want!" Today's economic climate: Few people. Few words. Few dollars. More than ever, communicating with your external customers and internal colleagues is crucial to success and survival. From the top tier of the corporate tower to the mail room, employees must waste no words to make their needs clear in quick and concise ways. Much-needed change doesn't happen without proper communication. And poor communication skills can kill any worthy project. Newspaper columnist and comedy speaker Dave Lieber, an ultimate communicator, shares tips and strategies in a fun and comical way that audiences enjoy, learn and remember. Find out why he is one of the Southwest's most popular speakers.

TOPIC 2:
Marketing You: Ways to Make Your Brand Stand Out in a Cluttered World Don't get discouraged about getting your message out in a cluttered, over-saturated media world. As a newspaper columnist, Dave is always amazed at how business people and others who try to get their messages out to the public miss the best way to portray themselves. Your story is usually as good as your product or service. But often, you don't think about ways to tell your personal story to enhance sales. As an expert in storytelling techniques, Dave shares how to tell your story so listeners instantly care about you and want to help you. How? By hiring you. By buying from you. And by telling their friends about you. It's so easy; you'll wonder why you never thought of it before.

TOPIC 3:
The Secrets of Storytelling: How to Get on the Front Page and the 6 o'clock News As a newspaper columnist, Dave receives as many as 100 story pitches a week. So how does he choose what to put in his newspaper column? In this workshop, he shares the secrets of getting your charity, house of worship, business, event or personality profile featured on the front page of your newspaper, on the television news and on radio. It's a unique look at public relations that causes P.R. specialists who have been in business for years to walk away thanking Dave for new insights into their profession.

TOPIC 4:
Comedy Speech: "If a New Yorker Can Make it in Texas, Imagine What You Could Do!" Dave's most popular story about how he struggled to fit into Texas is a tale that everyone can relate to and find a piece of themselves in. At first, he didn't know if chicken-fried steak was chicken or steak. He didn't know which was the front end of a cowboy hat. He didn't even know who Garth Brooks was. But he overcame his struggle - thanks to a dog who hated him and a women's club that rescued him. You'll laugh, then cry - and in the end, the message of fitting into any new environment, new job or any new and challenging situation is a story of laughter and inspiration that audiences everywhere describe as truly memorable.
